Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: What are some good teen books?

oh yes,

The following books I absolutly adore.  (I am a teen so I know exactly what is the best, lol)


  1. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
  2. Harry Potter (Obvious) - J.K. Rowling
  3. Ranger's Apprentice Series
  4. Eragon Series - by Paloski
  5.  Jane Eyre (Very Romantic Book) - by Charllote Bronte
  6. Twilight (For Girls Only) - Stephanie Meyers
  7. Da Vinci Code ( A Bit Deep)
  8. Artemis Fowl Series (for younger teens)

There are many more,  but those are the ones I highly recommend.

 You can not find audio books on Jane Eyre thought because it was published in the 1800's.  I am not sure if they already have one, but just FYI.


Thanks and I hope that this was useful.

Have you read The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman? I also enjoyed the Darren Shan series, What My Mother Doesn't Know, the Inkheart series, the Pendragon series. Let me know what you think! I'm sure that you've read the Twilight Series.

Re: What are some good teen books?

One of my favorite series is The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray. The first book in the trilogy is A Great and Terrible Beauty, and it is soooooo good. It's about a girl who gets sent to a school in England during the victorian age after her mother dies. But, Gemma can see visions and realizes she belongs to a secret society called the Order. It's one of my favorite books (besides Twilight and Harry Potter, of course) Right now I'm reading Evermore by Alyson Noel, and I really like that too. If you're into vampires, you should try the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz.
The persons of their world lived in an atmosphere of faint implications and pale delicacies, and the fact that he and she understood each other without a word seemed to the young man to bring them nearer than any explanation would have done.

Bartimaeus Trilogy Boxed Set 


Fairly legendary by now.

My favorite series.

Sad but amazing.








His Dark Materials Boxed Set 


Everyone knows this one by now.

I'm suprised nobody mentioned it.








Percy Jackson and the Olympians Three Volume Boxed Set 


There's 5 books in all, it's a fun read, shame it's not bigger.

It's much like Artemis Fowl only here mythology is dominant.

Great books.

Re: What are some good teen books?

Terraem is a good book.  Here is the Summary:


Fourteen year-old Menaha Ohlend has never quite felt as if she fit in. She spends most of her time alone trying to ignore the strange noises and voices she often hears inside her head. After winning a sponsored essay contest, Menaha can hardly believe her luck as the grand prize is a trip to Camp Squamish, a place she has dreamt of going her entire life. Yet, Camp Squamish will have to wait, for Menaha will soon enter a world beyond her wildest imagination. The van waiting in the parking lot will not be taking her to summer camp, but will instead be the first step on a journey to Terraem, eight light years away, where she was not only born, but where her father, someone she has not seen for years, has been living all her life. With the help of her new Terraemi friends Sananda and Soter, will soon learn to grow and understand her natural gifts, both as a young Terraemi put onto Earth for a specific purpose, and as a normal teenage girl growing up in North America.
